NZXT Kraken X31

NZXT today takes the Kraken liquid coolers line to new depths with the Kraken X31 by re-imagining the 140mm platform in a smaller, more affordable 120mm package without sacrificing the performance the Kraken has come to be known for.

Releasing the 120mm Kraken

By utilizing a 120mm radiator, NZXT has increased the Kraken radiator line’s compatibility to include cases that don’t support our 140mm standard. The X31 radiator is also optimized to run on a single fan without losing static pressure, airflow, or performance. Extended tubing make installing the Kraken X31 a breeze, while our industry leading six year all-inclusive warranty keeps your rig performing reliably at top performance.

Variable Speed Pump

The Kraken X31 includes the same state-of-the-art integrated variable speed pump that keeps noise to a minimum during use without sacrificing top end pump power as in the X41 and X61. A single 120mm pressure-optimized PWM fan connects directly with the pump to give complete software control over your Kraken cooler.

TurboDuo RADEON R9 270

AXR9 270 2GBD5-TDHEOC _BOX_ CARD

INTRODUCTION

It’s been a while since we looked at low to mid-range graphics card here at TheOverclocker. As we are primarily concerned with only the highest end SKUs and the most ridiculous gaming and overclocking gear. However, most people can’t afford to spend $600 USD on a graphics card or set aside $300 for an LN2 pot or any other hardware that we take for granted. For the most part, $200 is what average gamers are willing to spend on a graphics card upgrade. After all, spend is largely dedicated to games and subscriptions for MMOs and triple A titles. This sub $200 market isn’t small by any measure and very highly contested between AMD and NVIDIA. Subsequently each vendor’s partners are out to prove that they have earned your $200 more than their competitors. To that end, we are looking at the PowerColor TurboDuo, Radeon R9 270 OC graphics card today. At $180 USD it is priced in line with the other R9 270 graphics cards out on the market. Of course you could always purchase a cheaper version like the XFX Double D R9-2780A but that one is slower as it has a lower core and boost clock. This goes for the Sapphire Dual-X model as well.
